Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) released the Hospital Standardized Mortality Ratio (HSMR) for the 2009-10 fiscal year today.
The HSMR compares mortality rates for acute care hospitals, of which UHN is one, across Canada. The average, or base, rate for all Canadian hospitals is represented by a score of 100. A score of over 100 indicates that the risk of dying in that hospital is greater than average; a score under 100 means the risk is lower than average.
UHN is proud to have attained an HSMR of 76, meaning we fall well below the national average. This is the sixth year in a row that our HSMR has steadily fallen, an indication of the success of our continued efforts in maintaining and improving patient safety across all areas of our three hospitals.
UHN is actively participating in Safer Healthcare Now initiatives, such as establishing a Critical Care Response Team which quickly identifies and facilitates the resuscitation of inpatients. These and other patient safety initiatives will ensure continued commitment to reducing patient mortality.
